I'm a social worker, sister, daughter, aunt, and friend. Nothing is more important to me than the people I love. Lucky for me, there are many.
I was born and raised in Virginia after my parents left Brooklyn, where both landed in their early 20's but where neither was raised. I loved running around outside as a kid...playing capture the flag and hide and go seek in the dark, riding bikes, building forts, and hanging out in the playhouse my dad built above the shed. My siblings were my best playmates. At a certain point, after visiting our cousins in the city, I realized this is where I wanted to be. About 11 years later I made the move. And after 8 years living here, I often think about returning to VA for something a bit quieter...and with a little more space for some dogs, cats, and maybe kids. But I have a great community in Brooklyn that I'm a part of and a job that I love.
